SANKT POELTEN, Austria - Josef Fritzl, on trial for holding his daughter as a sex slave for 24 years, should be placed in psychiatric care because he risks re-offending, an expert witness said during Fritzl's trial yesterday.

"The danger is still very much that he will re-offend if he is not treated," psychiatrist Adelheid Kastner told the court.

"It is necessary that he continues being treated until he can no longer be classified as dangerous." - Sapa-AFP
